KILLED HIMSELF

OTTUMWA, Ia. April 30 – John Reeves, the well-known baseball player and last year’s umpire in the Illinois-Iowa league, Wednesday morning stepped behind the counter of the Baker house, where he was employed as solicitor, and blew out his brains with a revolver. Domestic infelicity was the cause. Three hours after his death a letter came from his wife, saying that the breach had been healed and she would live with him again.
